Hack4Norden 2016

Calling entrepreneurs, start-ups and creative developers with an interest in culture, open data or the Nordic.

The cultural hackathon, Hack4DK returns September 23rd to 25th, and this year we add yet another layer to the traditional hackathon. In addition to Hack4DK, we offer the opportunity of competing in our Nordic competition track, Hack4Norden. The winning group wins the price of a trip to Slush Festival in Helsinki this November, where they will pitch their project to investors and engineers from 100 countries, receive business support and tons of other great prizes. Read more about the prizes and background here: hack4.dk

All it takes to enter the competition is to work within the sphere of Nordic data or –culture. To read more about the competition criteria and Slush Festival click here  or join us at our pre-event at Statens Museum for Kunst / The National Gallery of Denmark August 31st. Get free tickets here.

To experience the ingenuity and collaboration of technology, creativity and culture follow our Facebook site Hack4DK. This is also where you can keep updated on the competition criteria and the jury.
